“Very disappointed”
Reviewed 17 June 2003

Before taking what was our first (and last) trip to Lake Lure, we called ahead and asked several questions. We were assured that outdoor pools were available, etc. Finding Valley Blvd. was not difficult but finding the resort itself was a nightmare. The two huge signs listed the resort's name had been chopped into two pieces. Our accomodations in Apple Valley Villas were fine and we immediately set off to find the two outdoor pools. The first pool we were sent to had no water. We were sent (Driving as this is a sprawling resport) to a second pool which was filthy. Maids there let us in but we refused to use such a nasty pool - debris literally floating in it and scum on the pool itself. After waiting an hour for someone to show up to look at the pool, we gave up and went to the indoor pool - stepping through construction debris as it was being renovated. I was not impressed with this resort, the professionalism of the staff or their failure to lat us know that they were not fully ready for visitors in May. We wasted our valuable time and money as this was not the relaxing weekend we had hoped for. Oh - the next day no one had touched the nasty pool.
